Title: Will missing Juma Bayan invalidate my Juma Salah?

Question

Asalaamu Alaykum,


If you miss the jumah bayan, but get there in time for the start of the salah.  Will you jumah be valid?

Or is the bayaan part of the salah and therefore your jumah would not be complete?

Answer

The day of Friday is the blessed and virtuous day.

Refer to the following Hadith:[1]

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، قَالَ: «خَيْرُ يَوْمٍ طَلَعَتْ عَلَيْهِ الشَّمْسُ يَوْمُ الْجُمُعَةِ، فِيهِ خُلِقَ آدَمُ، وَفِيهِ أُدْخِلَ الْجَنَّةَ، وَفِيهِ أُخْرِجَ مِنْهَا، وَلَا تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ إِلَّا فِي يَوْمِ الْجُمُعَةِ

Translation:

Hadhrat Abu Huraira [Radhiallahu Anhu] reported the Messenger of Allah [Sallallahu Alaihi Wa-Sallam] saying:

The best day on which the sun has risen is Friday; on it Adam [Alaihis Salaam] was created, on it he was made to enter Paradise, on it he was expelled from it. And the last hour will take place on no day other than Friday. [Sahih-Muslim 2/585 Darul-Ihya-Al-Turath]

Muslims should go to the musjid early on the day of Friday and earn the rewards of going early for Juma.

Refer to the following hadith:[2]

قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: «إِذَا كَانَ يَوْمُ الْجُمُعَةِ، كَانَ عَلَى كُلِّ بَابٍ مِنْ أَبْوَابِ الْمَسْجِدِ مَلَائِكَةٌ يَكْتُبُونَ الْأَوَّلَ فَالْأَوَّلَ، فَإِذَا جَلَسَ الْإِمَامُ طَوَوُا الصُّحُفَ، وَجَاءُوا يَسْتَمِعُونَ الذِّكْرَ، وَمَثَلُ الْمُهَجِّرِ كَمَثَلِ الَّذِي يُهْدِي الْبَدَنَةَ، ثُمَّ كَالَّذِي يُهْدِي بَقَرَةً، ثُمَّ كَالَّذِي يُهْدِي الْكَبْشَ، ثُمَّ كَالَّذِي يُهْدِي الدَّجَاجَةَ، ثُمَّ كَالَّذِي يُهْدِي الْبَيْضَةَ

Translation:

When Friday comes, at every gate of the masjid there are angels who write down the people's names in the order in which they come, then when the imam comes out, they roll up the scrolls and listen to the khutbah. The one who comes early to the prayer is like the one who sacrifices a camel, then the one who comes after him is like the one who sacrifices a cow, then the one who comes after him is like the one who sacrifices a ram" until he mentioned a chicken and an egg. [Sahih-Muslim 2/587 Darul-Ihya-Al-Turath]

A persons Juma salaah is valid if he comes after the Juma bayaan. However, a Muslim should come early for the Friday prayers and earn more rewards.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
